Hopscotch CD 2: May 31st. All Day!

We are in the beginning planning phases of Hopscotch CD 2, a two-mile hopscotch course through the Central District! Last year over 40 community groups, business and neighbors had fun, games, books, and garage sales along the route from Jackson to Union. We will have an organizational meeting on Tuesday, March 18 to set this year’s route. Can we extended it to Madrona or Jackson Place? Only if we have more help. We’re also going to have to raise some money as the city isn’t ready to give us a grant for the second year. Please email: jacksoncommons@gmail.com if you want to get the updates, lend a hand, have a garage sale or lemonade stand on the route, or have other ideas on how to make Hopscotch CD a great event.

With the CD News sadly going away, it’s going to be harder to help spread the work. We posting updates to these events and other Jackson Street news on Facebook, JacksonCommonsSeattle ,on Twitter: @JacksonCommons or at www.jacksoncommons.com.
